Our party of 2 guys couldn't feel more welcome during out stay there in May. Mathew, Vicky and the wonderful family provided terrific views, accomodation, food, drinks, setting and hospitality on a night we needed to relax. Some of the best food we had in all of our South Africa tour. Special thanks to Charles who made our night by providing great company and the whole family who addressed any needs for a great night. One of our favorite places in South Africa and would try to make it back


Perfect accommodation, very friendly staff, just PERFECT!!!!!


It's kinda hard together, but it's totally worth it!!!


It is a hostel so the furnishings are not fancy or new but in all other respects this is a great place to stay. The staff was very helpful even to the point of finding us a recipe so we could make potjie. The view from the veranda is terrific.

The location of this hostel is pretty cool! You have a view over the forest, the lagoon of Plettenberg Bay and also over the sea. There are many places to sit outside and also fire places. It's really worth a stay!
